D. Concrete.

(1) Fabricate and install box units around hard to reach areas,
i.e., vent ducting, stuffing tubes, and pipe brackets.

(2) Apply concrete by pouring into boxed area to produce slope


towards deck drains and to provide vertical surfaces and square
corners that suit application of cove tiles.

(3) Remove box units after concrete is cured.

E. Adhesive (mortar) and tile.

(1) Apply an ANSI A118.3 epoxy adhesive to the deck and on


vertical surfaces up 4 inches from the deck.

(2) Ceramic cove base and bull nose top pieces shall be used on
the vertical portions of the tile system.

(3) The tiles shall be stored flat.

(4) The application and installation of adhesive and tile may have
to be accomplished in sections if the area is so large as to prevent
laying tiles within adhesive pot-life.

contact between adhesive and tile is achieved and that there is no
entrapped air in the adhesive.

temperature as close as practicable to room temperature, but in
all cases between 64 degrees Fahrenheit and 81 degrees Fahrenheit

neatly into position without a gap between them and not requiring
bending or application by force. Tiles can be taped together with
masking tape to pull joints together during curing of the adhesive.

(5) The deck should be rolled initially by hand with a vinyl seam
roller. Two to 4 hours after application of the adhesive, but prior
to adhesive setting, the tiled surface should be rolled with a 100
lb. floor tile roller to ensure a good bond between the tiles,
adhesive, and sub-floor.

(6) Clean away excess adhesive before it is allowed to dry. For


water based adhesive use a soft cloth moistened with denatured
alcohol. Do not use mineral spirits, which will cause swelling and
have a tendency to curl.

significantly lower total ownership costs than all other decking
materials.

(2) Chemical-resistant flooring, MIL-PRF-32584, materials qualified to Type V

electrical grade sheeting, MIL-DTL-15562. (For example: If the pilot
house is designated an electrical space, the entire floor will require
MIL-DTL-15562 sheeting.)

(5) If MIL-DTL-15562, Type I, electrical grade sheeting is not installed in


designated electrical spaces, then localized installation of MIL-DTL-
15562, Type II or III matting is required in areas where specific
electrical hazards may exist in accordance with 3.9.13.

5 of 10 ITEM NO: 009-37


FY-19
3.10.2 Where existing caulking is identified to be sound and in good
condition, set the existing caulking deeper into the seam opening to ensure
that it is driven solidly home and to make room for additional caulking.

3.10.2.1 Set the existing caulking by driving the caulking


uniformly, to the same hardness in each seam. To prevent a wedging effect it
shall be set to a hardness that would not allow an awl to penetrate more than
3/8-inch.

3.10.3 Caulking seams shall be clean and dry before installing new
caulking and caulking compound.

3.10.4 Caulk deck planking caulking seams using treated caulking


cotton and spun-type marine oakum conforming to T-O-56. Treat the caulking

not less than 3/4-inch staple length, and shall be free from oil, fire-
damaged or scorched cotton, added waste, and substantially free from linters.

3.10.4.2 The untreated caulking cotton shall be soft and

copper naphthenate-asphaltum to produce caulking cotton having a minimum of
one percent metallic copper and 1-1/2 percent, plus or minus 1/2 percent,
asphalt, based on the weight of the treated cotton. The copper shall be
uniformly distributed throughout the cotton.

3.10.4.5 The treated caulking cotton shall be dry to the


touch prior to installation.

3.10.5 Caulk hull shell planking caulking seams using treated


caulking cotton conforming to the requirements outlined in 3.10.4.1 through
3.10.4.5 and spun-type marine oakum conforming to T-O-56.

3.10.5.1 Drive one to 2 strands of caulking cotton into the


bottom of the seams, prior to installing marine oakum, to ensure that
deep/tight seams are filled.

tucked, and hard-driven to a depth that provides space for installation of
seam caulking compound.

6 of 10 ITEM NO: 009-37


FY-19
3.10.6.1 The size of the seam in width and depth determines
the required amount of cotton/oakum caulking and shall be filled to within
1/4-inch to 3/8-inch of the plank surface.

3.10.6.2 The amount of cotton/oakum caulking inserted shall


be carefully controlled to limit the possibility to "caulk off" a plank from
its frames if too much is driven in and forced beyond the outgage bevel.

3.10.6.3 The cotton/oakum caulking shall be driven uniformly,


to the same hardness and depth in each seam, to prevent a wedging effect. It
shall be set to a hardness that would not allow an awl to penetrate more than
3/8-inch.

3.10.6.4 Butt caulking seams shall be caulked ahead of


adjoining longitudinal caulking seams to ensure that short ends of caulking
will be locked in place.

3.10.6.5 The ends of sound existing caulking and new caulking


shall be drawn out and tapered so as to be married in a continuous bulk and
then be installed as stated in 3.10.6 through 3.10.6.4.

3.10.6.6 Hull shell planking caulking seams of heavy planked


ships shall have the caulking set firmly home by means of a heavy horsing |
iron driven into the seams with a heavy mallet known as a beetle. This is a
2-man operation that requires one man to hold the long-handled horsing iron
while the second man swings the horsing beetle. This operation ensures that
the caulking will be well seated, will not work loose, and is the final means
to stiffen the hull.

3.10.7 Pay (fill) deck planking caulking seams with polyurethane


caulking compound conforming to MIL-S-24340, Type I, or marine glue
MIL-G-413, as specified in the invoking Work Item.

to 1-1/2 times the width of the seam but no deeper than 3/8-inch.

3.10.7.2 Seal the surfaces of the seams and the installed


cotton caulking with a seam primer that is compatible with the caulking
compound.

3.10.7.3 Install one-inch wide masking tape on both sides of


each caulking seam to keep the caulking compound from penetrating the open
grain areas of the deck planking.

3.10.7.4 Remove the tape installed in 3.10.7.3 upon


completion of caulking operations.

3.10.8 Pay hull shell planking caulking seams with caulking compound
in accordance with the following requirements.

7 of 10 ITEM NO: 009-37


FY-19
3.10.8.1 Pay underwater hull caulking seams with Interlux 30
brown underwater seam compound (oleoresinous material cut with an aromatic
solvent).

3.10.8.2 Pay hull caulking seams above the waterline with


Interlux 31 white seam compound (oleoresinous material cut with an aromatic
solvent).

3.10.8.3 The depth of the seam caulking compound shall be one


to 1-1/2 times the width of the seam.

3.10.8.4 Paint the surfaces of the seams and the installed


cotton/oakum caulking with anti-fouling paint conforming to MIL-PRF-24647,
Type II, Class 1, prior to filling underwater hull shell planking seams with
caulking compound.

3.10.8.5 Seal the surfaces of the seams and the installed


cotton/oakum caulking with a seam primer that is compatible with the caulking
compound on hull shell planking seams existing above the waterline.

3.10.9 Prior to paying the caulking compound installed in 3.10.7 and


3.10.8, seams shall be thoroughly cleared and cleaned of foreign matter.

3.10.9.1 The caulking compound may be applied with a caulking


gun but shall be handworked into the seams to eliminate air pockets and voids
in the seams.

3.10.9.2 Remove surplus caulking compound from surrounding


surfaces.

3.10.9.3 Pay and complete seams daily, leaving no exposed


cotton/oakum caulking at the end of each work shift to ensure the
cotton/oakum caulking remains dry and clean.

3.10.9.4 When installing caulking compound and its compatible


primer, the manufacturer's instructions shall be strictly adhered to. Seams
greater than 1/2-inch width shall be payed in 2 applications spaced 24 hours
apart.

3.11 Blank openings resulting from removals and relocations, unless


otherwise specified, in accordance with the following.

3.11.1 Blank deck planking as follows:
